Posted Jun 11, 2019 PSII is pleased to announce a new partnership with Canada Workforce Solutions, a specialized division of Equifax. Through the partnership, employers will have access to a powerful new income and employment verification solution, Verification ExchangeTM, which streamlines the exchange between employers and organizations needing to verify the information (verifiers), delivering unprecedented speed and confidence into the income and employment verification process. Ultimately, this service contributes to the financial wellness of Canadian consumers - your employees - by facilitating access to the credit and services they need. This new value-added service is available at no additional cost to our customers and their employees. Until now, there has been a gap in the Canadian marketplace where verifiers, such as mortgage and auto lenders, social service agencies and pre-employment screeners, among others, require confirmation of employment and/or income as part of the application process. The element of risk and potential fraud can be high when dependent upon applicant-provided paper-based information. By using Verification Exchange, that risk can be significantly reduced, as verifiers with permissible purpose and consumer consent are able to verify information instantaneously twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week. The service eliminates the need for additional involvement by the consumer and removes the administrative burden on your HR department of producing and confirming traditional paper documentation. Contact your PSII rep today to learn more about the Verification Exchange service and how it can help improve internal efficiency of your HR department and the employee experience by delivering a secure and automated process for income and employment verification for employees when they need it.

Posted May 23, 2019 Howard Levitt, Senior Partner of Levitt LPP speaks on workplace harassment in his recently released article titled "An employee is slapped across the face at work — but she's the one who gets fired". By the title alone, it is evident that workplace harassment is still a pertinent issue. The occupational health and safety act was established to serve as government regulation combatting this "societal concern". Levitt stresses in this article that it is "imperative for employers to conduct a thorough investigation of all workplace harassment and workplace violence complaints." Employers owe a due diligence to each individual employee to make them feel safe and respected in the workplace. Levitt mentions as he continues, "Failing to adequately prepare the workplace, investigate or take steps to address inappropriate workplace conduct may result in an employer being ordered to pay not only wrongful dismissal but punitive and aggravated damages."
